    Koreans work the second longest hours in the OECD, a ranking unchanged from a year ago.

    The average worker put in eight hours a day and 22 days a month for 2,113 hours last year. That's almost 350 more hours than their peers in other OECD countries, or 43 extra days.

    Germans enjoyed the shortest hours with 1,371 last year, followed by the Dutch with just over 1,400 hours. The only country with longer working hours than Korea is Mexico with more than 2,200 hours a year.

    Average work hours in Korea have gradually been decreasing over the years, down almost 240 hours from 10 years ago.
